Bought my bike used with 258 miles on it. Started railing on it and not worrying about the break-in revs at 270 miles cause it was driving me crazy trying to stick to that stupid schedule. Haven't had a single issue with the bike yet. Right around 13,500 miles on it now too. Regular oil and filter changes, way ahead of the factory schedule and the bike will be fine. I did mine at 300, 600 & 1200 for the "break-in" and then every 3000 miles since then. Always changed the oil AND filter each time too.
I never really bothered with the break in. First day I rode it, it was pouring rain so I did keep it under the break in limit. After that, erm. I'm sure glad I never took up smoking because I don't have much self control. Bike has 25000k and I'm, yet to have a problem. There has been much discussion (Read: Heated) in the past about which method is better but it's all up to you. It's your bike. There are proven results with both methods that indicate they are both fine to use with no serious detrimental health to the bike in the long run. I personally wouldn't suggest redlining it down the road straight out of the dealership but still give her some. That's what these engines are made for.
Thanks for the reply..I drove about 600Km on it and never went over 8000 rpm so it should be well driven nicely,over average in comparesin to all the other replies...
